Who Said It: Presidential Candidates IRL Or Their 'SNL' Parodies?

Since 1975, “Saturday Night Live” has brought political satire into the homes of America.

From Dan Ackroyd as Jimmy Carter and Will Ferrell playing George W. Bush to Tina Fey's perfected Sarah Palin, the show's impressions are so spot-on it's hard to differentiate between the parody and the politician.

The last episode of 2015 aired this Saturday, and the line between imitation and reality has proven to be even blurrier with the upcoming 2016 Presidential Election.

With so many of the hopefuls essentially already embodying caricatures of actual politicians, “SNL” Season 41 has no shortage of material.

We decided to compile a list of the most absurd quotes — both real and parodied — to see how hard it is to tell which is which.

Take our quiz and test your “SNL” vs. IRL knowledge below.
